No Hot Water
Hello All, hopefully this is a silly question. First time owner of a 2017 23KW toy hauler.
I bought it used and it doesn't look like the prior owner ever even used it, quite literally.
Prior to trying to use the hot water, I went through the steps that I noted online:
1 - vented air from the system
2 - turned the valve on to allow water to the hot water tank.
3 - filled our fresh water tank
4 - turned on the hot water tap and waited for the air to cease and water to start coming out
5 - turned on the water heater (propane)
6 - I went out and checked to ensure the flame was lit. It was a strong blue one.
7 - I waited until it turned off at the designated 180F. I wanted to wait the first time to ensure the temp gauge was working properly.
8 - I turned on the hot water tap and waited. For a brief instant, I had warm water. Then it went back to cold. I continued to wait as I thought maybe the lines were purging the prior cold water. No such luck after 10min.
This is where the head scratching started. I went back over everything and checked the primary bypass (inline with the hose so open). I then went to the vent and nice hot water came out. OK - that works, but somehow the hot water isn't reaching the taps. This is the fact for all water availability (Outdoor / kitchen / bathroom sink & shower).
Am I missing something silly or what?
Thanks for the help!
